Hello all,


Your mention of boiling water brought to mind the following:

As I understand it, when slavery was legal in the U.S., in the South, plantation owners would boil all sorts of vegetables and other food items for their own consumption but would drink only “fresh” water. The water used for boiling “food” was provided to the slaves. As a result, the slave owners often suffered from anemia and other afflictions connected to demineralization of the body while the slaves, aside from the horrific conditions of slavery, were stronger and healthier than their owners.

Given this, I thought I might mention household water filtration as a last resort to remove pollutants, contaminants, etc. that are saturating our drinking water supplies. For example, Chlorine is a known carcinogenic and Fluoride is responsible for many nervous system disorders. Regardless, governments still insist on water treatment that involves Chlorinating the drinking water rather than committing to research and development for alternative methods. The problem with household water filtration units is that some add large amounts of Sodium to the water to “soften” it and remove the Calcium, Magnesium and other “useful” minerals. Sound familiar?

I have used a portable water filtration unit to filter both bottled and tap water. I used litmus paper to check the results. The bottled water had an starting PH of 7.4. Once filtered, the same water had a PH of 6.2. Similar results were noted for the tap water. Basically, the water has been softened by the removal of minerals as well as contaminants such as Chlorine.

Naturally soft water is acidic in PH and contains very few dissolved minerals. Clearly, this corrosive water is not desirable for consumption as in time it would compromise the health of the individual. Would the now filtered water above be preferable to drink in its new state or its old state?

Ironically, the water filtration unit that I own purports to remineralize the water with powdered coral, the original subject matter of this thread.

Distilled water has no mineral content. Can this be good for you? I think not. I have spoken to a Chemist that insists that long term consumption of distilled water is not a good thing and that powdered coral being extremely alkaline may prove to be beneficial to those people with mineral deficiency problems that are, and here is the clincher, able to absorb their minerals and other nutrients.

Food for thought,



I’ve never heard that report about southern slave owners….Where/what is your source?

Like many other folklore items, it may have been “added to” throughout the years.

It is probably one of the urban myths we southerners have to live with.

As a side note, it is NOT ttue that southerners go to a wedding to pick up girls…..(really I did not know she was my cousin!!!)

I did not mean to offend anyone. Nor am I making a blanket statement about any one group.

The urban myth angle crossed my mind but this story was relayed to me twice. First, in a Humanities class in College and second, by a personal trainer trying to make his point about proper food preparation. You know… steaming versus boiling, etc.

My point was simply that some water contains nutrients/minerals and others do not. Therefore it is important which type you consume.

Take it easy,


No offense taken...


I didn’t take offense, was just curious as to where that came from. It was the first time I’ve ever heard that and was interested in the source.

How much water do we really need?

August 20, 2002 Posted: 2:29 AM EDT (0629 GMT)

WASHINGTON (AP) — “Drink at least eight glasses of water a day” is an adage some obsessively follow, judging by the people sucking on water bottles at every street corner — but the need for so much water may be a myth.

Fear that once you’re thirsty you’re already dehydrated? For many of us, another myth. Caffeinated drinks don’t count because they dehydrate? Probably wrong, too.

So says a scientist who undertook an exhaustive hunt for evidence backing all this water advice and came up mostly, well, dry. Now the group that sets the nation’s nutrition standards is studying the issue, too, to see if it’s time to declare a daily fluid level needed for good health — and how much leaves you waterlogged.

Until then, “obey your thirst” is good advice, says Dr. Heinz Valtin, professor emeritus at Dartmouth Medical School, whose review of the eight-glass theory appears in this month’s American Journal of Physiology.

It’s about time for all the attention, says Pennsylvania State University nutritionist Barbara Rolls, a well-known expert on thirst. “There’s so much confusion out there.”

Much of it centers on where you should get your daily water.

“There’s this conception it can only come out of a bottle,” and that’s wrong, notes Paula Trumbo of the Institute of Medicine’s Food and Nutrition Board, which hopes to decide by March whether to issue the first official water-intake recommendation.

In fact, people absorb much water from the food they eat. Fruits and vegetables are 80 to 95 percent water; meats contain a fair amount; even dry bread and cheese are about 35 percent water, says Rolls. That’s in addition to juices, milk and other beverages.

And many of us drink when we don’t really need to, spurred by marketing, salty foods and dry environments, Rolls says.

“For most of us, that’s not going to matter — you’re just going to need to go to the bathroom more,” she says.

But for people with certain medical conditions, chugging too much can be harmful, sometimes fatal, Valtin warns. Even healthy people — such as teenagers taking the party drug Ecstasy, which induces abnormal thirst — can occasionally drink too much. So-called water intoxication dilutes sodium in the blood until the body can’t function properly.

Conversely, no one disputes that getting enough water is crucial. Indeed, the elderly often have a diminished sensation of thirst and can become dangerously dehydrated without realizing it. People with kidney stones, for example, require lots of water, as does anyone doing strenuous exercise.

But the question remains: How much water does the typical, mostly sedentary American truly need? And what’s the origin of the theory, heavily promoted by water sellers and various nutrition groups, that the magic number is at least 64 ounces?

Valtin, who has spent 40 years researching how the body maintains a healthy fluid balance, determined the advice probably stems from muddled interpretation of a 1945 Food and Nutrition Board report. That report said the body needs about 1 milliliter of water for each calorie consumed — almost 8 cups for a typical 2,000-calorie diet — but that “most of this quantity is contained in prepared foods.”

That language somehow has morphed into “at least” 64 ounces daily, Valtin says. (One Web site’s “hydration calculator” even recommends a startling 125 ounces for a 250-pound couch potato.) And aside from the American Dietetic Association’s advice, few of the “drink more water” campaigns targeted to consumers mention how much comes from food.

Valtin couldn’t find any research proving the average person needs to drink a full 64 ounces of water daily.

Also, contrary to popular opinion, he cites a University of Nebraska study that found coffee, tea and sodas are hydrating for people used to caffeine and thus should count toward their daily fluid total.

Other myths:

* That thirst means you’re already dehydrated. That can be true of the elderly, and studies of marathon runners and military recruits in training have found that some focus so intently on strenuous exercise that they block thirst sensations until they’re in trouble. But Rolls did hourly hydration tests to prove that drinking when thirsty is good advice for the rest of us.

* That water blocks dieters’ hunger. Studies show water with food can help you feel full faster, but that just drinking water between meals has little effect, Rolls says.

So how much do we need? Until the Institute of Medicine sets a level, “if people obey their thirst and they are producing urine of a normal yellow color, that’s a safe sign,” Valtin concludes.

Yeah, man….caused some weird shit in my life, too….Especially during Mardi Gras….

So is filtered water bad for you in the long term then?
There is a difference between filtered and distilled, I assume.

I don’t drink much water at work. It tastes nasty, almost rusty. We had the system tested when we had the buildng re-done, and the water systems passed all the tests with flying colors, but ughh, it tastes like shite, and if you leave a glass standing for a couple of hours, the water looks yellowish at the bottom.

Anyway, I was thinking of gettng one of those Britta systems, or something similar. They’re only like $30.00 at Target.
But, if I’m going to be filterng out the stuff I need, what’s the point then. I’d be better off drinking pepsi and getting my water from there (yea, I know, the caffene..)

Any ideas?

Back on another brand of coral calcium and my poop is great. I love it. Damn expensive though. Like 20 bucks for 2 months in pill form.

Hey Twat;

I have been taking Coral Calcium for a year and a half now. It is truly great shit!!! I will continue to take it the rest of my life.

I started buying it in pill form, and like you, I found it to be quite expensive. It didn’t take me long to start buying it in bulk form. MUCH cheaper. I just mix 1 1/2 tsp. in a glass of water and chug it down. It really doesn’t have a taste just a little gritty. Overall it is the way to go. Or you can purchase the gelatin capsules and make your own pills from the bulk, if you prefer.

I pay about $20.00 a pound and that is with shipping. My last shipment I bought 6 pounds and it was even cheaper. The site I get mine from is If you go there, you can find the Coral.

I hope this helps;


How long does it last you?

Twat ;

At 1 1/2 teaspoons a day, a pound will last about 6 months. That’ll be under $40.00 a year!! You can get away with just 1 tsp. a day but I take a bit more because I love the results.

I use to buy Tums in bulk too. I always had heart burn and nightly acid reflux. Since I’ve been on Coral, I haven’t had a Tums at all and I can eat anything I want now!!!

Good price. When buying Coral Calcium, how does one know it is contaminant free & the purest available?
